The trail leads you by a small pond and several woodland streams. A boardwalk crosses over the pond at one location, and the trail offers excellent opportunities for plant and wildlife observation.

Easy to hike unmarked trail which wraps around a murky little pond. The mineral springs has a long history but the water table is so low now that no water comes up to see let alone wade in.. I dont mean to talk badly about the park. Its good for. its size and the trails are well maintained. The welcome center is under renovations so maybe later 2015 there will be more to see.
